CHRISSY one of the California Kids of Kerries Helping Kerries.

Chrissy
Chrissy is believed to be 8-10 yo female now in southern CA. However it is possible that Chrissy is younger than 8-10 years of age. When a Kerry enters the rescue program, it is not always possible to know exactly how old she is when there is no documented birthdate available. In this case our range for Chrissy’s age comes from the intake and medical records of the shelter and veterinarian who base their estimate on the physical and sometimes the mental condition of the Kerry. She is from a former breeder who could no longer care for her Kerries. She is one of nine Kerries turned over to the Foundation rescue team to find new homes. According to the volunteers who have worked with her she has a good temperament and is in overall good health albeit underweight. Please consider being a foster parent for Chrissy or her permanent forever home. ..or become her Kerry Angel.

Please note: This Kerry is not quite ready for adoption but she should be soon. Please submit your application for her new forever home at the KBTF website so that you will be considered when she is ready for a new home in the next month or so.

Jiggs ... is now in his forever home!

Jiggs
Jiggs is a wonderful young energetic neutered Kerry boy that came to the Foundation through an owner surrender. Jiggs was an only dog throughout his first 2 years but a series of family changes found himself moving from Washington state to California with his owner and joining a family with 2 boxers. The adjustment to a multiple dog situation proved too much for Jiggs and his lady owner put Jiggs up for re-homing on the pet adoption website . The quick eye of a Foundation volunteer saw Jiggs and reached out to the owner immediately to see if KBTF could offer a Kerry savvy foster to Jiggs who was showing signs of dog aggression in his current situation and could end up in a worse place if someone not knowing the Kerry temperament were to try take him. Jiggs is now with his "foster" family in Northern CA who are reporting he is a happy healthy boy with a very bright future.

Update: Jiggs loves to hunt! Foster mom Karen informs us he hunts everything in her yard ... birds , bugs, rabbits ... everything. He's doing much better ... still "Kerry" stubborn but redirectable. Loves exploring the backyard off-leash .... He's an excellent watchdog and he's very protective.

Finn

Finn
Finn -
Finn is a 5 yr. old neutered male living in Victoria, BC. He came from (what I consider) a disreputable breeder, arriving at his new home at 2 years of age emaciated, untrained and fearful. He adjusted to his new family with no problem, integrating into their lives smoothly and accompanying the male owner on every possible outing, including sleeping under the dentist chair during an appointment!
Unfortunately, Finn was attacked by another dog on a walk and as a result has become so much more fearful that he is showing dog aggression. The owners have worked closely with an experienced trainer but with much heartache admit they are not in a position to give him the amount of training and management he will require.
This is a lovely dog… for the right owner. He is loving and happy, in great health, and though not food motivated, he loves his toys. He will not be considered for any but the most responsible and experienced owner who can work with him daily on his fears, and manage him in public with confidence.
Finn needs to be an only dog in a home with no children.
If you can offer this boy a chance to be your best friend, please contact Linda Grisley at lgrisley@shaw.ca
